Congratulations on Roselynn Verwoord’s (Educational Studies) recent success on being awarded an inaugural fellowship of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL). This award was presented earlier in Atlanta, Georgia, at their annual conference. Roselynn represents UBC and Canada internationally with 8 other Fellows from the UK, Canada, China, Singapore and the USA.
Roselynn’s contribution to SoTL has been evidenced through a dossier that is built upon a set of core values which include community engagement and global citizenship, collaboration as a fundamental process in building capacities for new ways of thinking, doing, and learning, and holistic, meaningful, intentional approaches to higher education. These nine fellows are at the vanguard of the ISSOTL Fellows program, which seeks to build communities and ecosystems animated by a generosity of spirit that animates all our endeavours, including mentorship, leadership, and a commitment to support established and emerging learners and scholars in the pursuit of knowledge creation and sharing.
